Swipe to pay at municipality

2016-07-26 06:00

The extension of credit and debit card payment facilities for motor vehicle registration services at the Strandfontein Municipal office follows a recent successful pilot roll-out of this service at the Cape Town Civic and also the Liberty Promenade Mall customer care centres.

Over the coming month, the City of Cape Town will be embarking on further metro wide roll-outs of the new service.

The expansion of card payment facilities for the payment of rates and tariff accounts, building plan and land use applications as well as traffic fines will take a bit longer as system upgrades are required.

The City will accept payments of up to R5000 per transaction by credit or debit card, or any other means of payment which does not hold any cost implications for the client. This amount covers most transactions by their clients, be it for motor vehicle licences, rates and services bills, or other sundry payments. The City will, however, reclaim the relevant banking fee for any payment over R5000.

Clients are encouraged to make electronic payments for large transactions with the City, as this will result in minimal reclaims of banking charges. Electronic (EFT) payments carry the lowest bank charges. Currently, more than 60% of payments to the City are via EFT payments.

“We are forging ahead with the enhancement of services at our municipal centres and we are committed to finding ways of constantly improving the level of convenience for our customers,” says deputy mayor Ian Neilson.
